Statement Maxi Dresses: Eye-Catching Prints


One way to get everyone’s attention with statement maxi dresses is with prints and patterns. As one of the easiest ways to introduce statement wear, the spring season is the perfect time of year for these options. Not mention, prints are also a great way to connect with the latest trends. No matter what it is exactly, the right pattern will make a killer statement piece—no matter the silhouette.


Our particular new favorite is the HANNAH ARTWEAR Charlee Printed Silk-habotai Halterneck Maxi Dress, a seasonal classic. We don’t even have to tell you that it’s new because you can just tell by looking at it. Maxis like these don’t come around often, so we’d recommend taking advantage of this unique look. Similarly, the THEMIS Z Phoebe Floral-print Silk Kaftan Dress is another fan favorite. It’s not surprising to see Themis Z on the top list of maxis. Known for their wide variety of trendsetting options, the brand knows just how to design the perfect statement dress.

Statement Maxi Dresses: Exciting Colors


Aside from printed statement maxi dresses, there are many colorful options to explore. Patterns are usually the first thing that come to mind when making a statement, but what about solids? The right color, even if not vivid, can really standout amongst the crowd. Whether it be pink or red, you don’t always need to wear more than three colors. A solid color paired with a texture like lace or sequins may just be what you need to make the perfect statement.


For example, the EMILIA WICKSTEAD Annette Tulle And Corded Lace Gown is one ravishing, eye-catching piece. As one hot up-and-coming color, this red dress will undoubtedly steal any show. And if you’re not feeling so bright of a color, the ERDEM Kenley Cape-effect Gathered Sequined Chiffon Gown is another wonderful gem. Not to mention, they’re perfect for the current transitionary weather—or even for when the weather starts to warm up. No matter how you intend on wearing them, these two statement maxi dresses are a win.
